It sees a Kerry girl fall for a Dublin team member

Dublin's Copper Face Jacks is getting a musical based on itself.

Copper Face Jacks: The Musical will have its world premiere on March 2nd.

The comedy is from the producers of 'Anglo: The Musical' and written by Ross O’Carroll Kelly creator, Paul Howard.

It's being billed as "a celebration of a club that started out life as something of a culchie embassy in Dublin" - but has since been embraced by its home city.

"Regardless of your county colours you'll always find a welcome (and a slow-set plus a nurse... in the club that has become synonymous with having a good time for three generations of Irish night clubbers."

It sees a sweet Kerry girl, who's moved to the big smoke for her dream job in the VHI, falling head over her flat-shoes with a true blue Dublin team member on the eve of a Dublin-Kerry All Ireland Final.

The play will open in Dublin's Olympia Theatre on July 5th.

Tickets, priced at €28 plus booking free, are available from Ticketmaster or the Olympia Theatre box office.
